After a one year break, the Bulgarian broadcaster BNT have now confirmed their participation for Eurovision 2020.
Through their Twitter account, the Bulgarian team have confirmed their participation, and the broadcaster have signed the agreement and rule book needed to participate.
Bulgaria withdrew from Eurovision 2019 citing financial issues, and it wasn’t clear when or whether the nation would make a return to the contest. It has now been reported that the broadcaster won’t be paying for the return to Eurovision, with a sponsor/s to cover the costs.
Prior to their withdrawal, Bulgaria had been highly successful, from Poli Genova achieving 4th place in 2016, to Kristian Kostov finishing in 2nd place the following year. IN 2018, Equinox represented Bulgaria with the song Bones and finished in 14th place.
